Review by: Sarah Sloane on Dec. 12, 2012 :
The Founders by Holly Barbo has a lot of positives and some negatives. Barbo has created a vivid world with an interesting history. Her description of the primary location is especially good. She is also able to bring to bring to life an impressive visual image of some of the characters.

Barbo's focus on the physical predicament of her planet and the sociological effects that result, bring to mind some of the great works of Ursula LeGuin.

On the negative side, I felt there was too much repetition and reiteration. Also, there were some awkward sentences every page or two. Both of these problems could be fixed by a good editor.

Overall, It was an enjoyable read. I plan to read the next book in the series.
